Natty’s location is for people who: can live with decent-priced, simple locations, prefer quiet, natural places rather than luxury hotels or big parties, are relaxed and not in a hurry. A rental car can help but is not essential (we didn’t have one).
We really, really enjoyed our 5-day stay in one of his cottages, which is simple but charming. Natty (the owner) provided us with home-cooked food and drinks (breakfast, dinner, fruits, juices, beer and his must-try rum ponches) and lots of information about the history, culture and current political challenges of Dominica. He is a straight but sincere person. And he knows a lot about the nature, local vegetables, herbs, fruits, etc.. You can ask him everything.
Natty’s tropical valley is really a quiet and natural place. During the day, few cars pass by; in the night time. There are no cars and you can fully enjoy the sound of nature. From there, Trafalgar falls and Wotten Waven sulphur springs are in walking distance, you can make both in half a day. Natty organized our pick-up from the port (we arrived by ferry), drove us to and picked us up from the boiling lake trail, was our driver and guide on a one-day trip to Portsmouth (Indian river, Fort Shirley, Syndicate), and drove us to the port for our departure. By bus, we went to see Roseau. Again: you can go there without own rental car.
We are happy that we have met Natty and stayed in his place. If we ever come back to Dominica, we will definitely stay there again.
Comment: If you want to do your own meals, make sure to ask Natty if the kitchen in his cottage is ready (it wasn’t yet when we were there) and understand that for larger shoppings, you need to go to Roseau. No problem for us as we liked his food.
Side comment: Because of one of the older comments on the profile picture, we took him a new one that better shows his nature: a friendly self-made man who follows DIY (do it yourself!) principles and makes his business.
Natty is a funny and charming host and his cottages are really cozy and clean. He knows everything about the rainforest, its plants, music and obviously about Dominica. We spent wonderful evenings at his corner bar, enjoying his homemade dishes and punches. And he would know how to treat a cold with rainforest plants...if you'd ever be so unlucky to catch a cold on a tropical island.
At first Natty's place is not located in the center of Roseau as indicated by map, but on the way from Trafalgar village to Wotten Waven village.
Sleeping conditions are fine, with comfty solid cottage really made with local materials, there is no hot water but instead internet is working fine and drinks at the bar are good:)
My stay at natty's tropical valley was an amazing experience.
His cottages are built by himself and arre located in trafalgar falls, near all the hotspots; trafalgar falls, boiling lake, titou gorge and the wotten waven hotsprings. If you want to relax at the spa's check out the knutty and nice spa.
Even though you are in the rainforest; sleeping between jungle sounds and the calming sound of the river you are only a 10 minute drive from the city centre of roseau. And there is WIFI too!
The cottages are very cool, built with local materials creating a rustic experience while still having all the comfort expected from a proper accomodation such as good beds and a real shower, and oh yeah no mosquitos!!
Natty is a great host, he is a combination of a ; securityguard, bartender, local tourguide, (politician), chef and entertainer. He knows a lot about the island and can arrange a lot aswell ( dont let his profile picture scare you!)I had breakfast and dinner which wa very good and competitively priced! At night he opened up the corner bar were we hung out listening to local music and drinking some of his creations from his collection of "Bush Rums".
All in all it was a great experience and i would highly recommend this place and definitely stay there again if i went back, the added feature for me was that i was able to support Natty who is a local guy trying to make a living out of his business.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
